The Maharajah serve excellent food. I eat here about once a month and use the delivery service 2-3 times as well. The food is so good! My partner is vegetarian so we love it because they specialise in veggie food and you don't just get veg in masala sauce, there is a lot of thought and flavour in their dishes.... More

Decided on trying after not being able to secure our first choice restaurant. We weren't able to book but we're encouraged to turn up anyway which we did. Waited for a few minutes whilst a table was found even though others arriving after us, who hadn't booked either, went straight through, so a little inconsistency in the approach here. Atmosphere...

When you walk in the door of the Maharajah it's obviously a classy joint. The staff are super friendly and even though we were just after a takeaway they were really helpful. The lounge at the front is just asking you to have a cheeky pint while you wait for the food. And the food? Top notch. Fresh, tasty and... More
